Wedding Wednesday - the beginning!

Hi all

Happy Wednesday!  As some of you know I recently got engaged :-) so I thought I would make Wednesday's into a post about the wedding planning.  We're definitely getting married at some point next year (possibly spring/summer) so I have lots of time and lots of posts to share with you!

Anyway to set the scene here is a little bit about where we got engaged...

We were holidaying in Barbados - staying at a gorgeous hotel called The House. It was such a stylish place - think white washed walls, white frette linens, wooden decking against the azure sea, and it had such a relaxed vibe!  Now can I just add that we don't stay at these kinds of places all the time so I did have a hint that there might be something going on. ;-)

On the Tuesday night the boy tells me he had booked dinner at The Cliff - an amazing restaurant very close by but difficult to get a reservation (even on a Tuesday!)  I dressed up especially -  wearing a coral dress from Ted Baker and it was here he popped the question  - after a delicious meal, sitting on a sofa sipping cocktails overlooking the sea.  And of course I said yes!

Here are a couple of pictures of The Cliff - I have since found out that Mr and Mrs Smith say its among the world's most romantic dining experience. I can vouch for that!!

Next week I'll share with you my initial thoughts on the big day

When we meet up I have a story about the Cliff involving an ex boyfriend! Can't wait for more deets - I would have been like Charlotte in Sex and the City if I had been there - you know the scene when she stands up in the resturant and yelps with excitement! Haha! xx
